Iowa State

Going to be a huge huge game as Iowa State will still mostly likely be top 10.

Notes about Iowa State:
Not a deep team, play 7 deep
Just lost a 12PPG Player who played 30+ min a game for them
Can score in bunches
No deficit is too big for them to over come, we should seize every opportunity
I feat McKay more than I do anyone else on ISU. Because in the Iowa 20 point comeback he dominated every aspect of the game and in the near comeback on UNI, he did the same thing.

I'm going with a UC victory in front of a sold out arena

7 PM on ESPN2. Not bad. There will be a lot of people checking in on this game I'm sure.

Iowa State has gone down big a couple times lately and it finally caught up with them tonight. Now they only have a few days for this tough road game. I think the wheels are going to come off.

I think we'll be -1.

Iowa State 65
UC 78

I watched them a bunch this year as I knew this game was looming on the schedule. I'd say Iowa state starts slow and finishes strong.


what worries me is we have a hard time building big leads against good competition and I think were gonna need to jump on them early
That's where the home court advantage comes in!

Reading the ISU message boards. They are really, really down on the team. Obviously they've been overrated in the polls. Without Naz Long they really only played 6 guys last night. I'm expecting us to win the game.

We need to go 3-0 on this home stand (vs. Iowa State, Temple, Tulsa). I'd love to be 13-2 ranked in the top 15 walking into Moody against SMU.

This team needs to find a way to win this game....

Them playing 6 deep should become a major problem for them as the game goes on. We need to attack/push tempo offensively.

Good points. I think the game will be closer. UC does not have the killer instinct to put Iowa State away by 13 points. As Mick says, we're too nice. Nope, ain't gonna happen !!

UC: 78
Iowa State: 72

Thinking UC will be favored by around 3.5. The Bearcats should be able to win this game. ISU, like many have been saying, don't have much depth. Their defense is nothing special so hopefully we can bring the tempo up a bit. Wear them out. Then finish the game strong since ISU usually plays a better second half.

UC: 74
ISU: 68
